Ever since Donald Trump took office, Adam Schiff worked with Deep State leakers to bring down President Trump.
But now the tables have turned.
And Adam Schiff was just betrayed by the last group of people he ever suspected.
The Washington swamp lost its collective mind when Donald Trump appointed German Ambassador Richard Grenell to serve as the Director of National Intelligence.
The Deep State was used to pliable stooges filling that role, and instead Donald Trump finally had a Director of National Intelligence who would loyally serve the agenda of the President and not act on behalf of faceless and unelected saboteurs within the intelligence community.
President Trump appointed Grenell as Acting Director of National Intelligence until the Senate confirmed his official pick – Texas Congressman John Ratcliffe.
Grenell made one move appointing Lora Shiao the Acting Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, replacing Russell Travers.
This caused Schiff to flip his lid and fire off a letter to Grenell demanding he not make any more personnel changes, explain in writing any changes that were made, and that Schiff’s committee planned to investigate the matter.
“President Trump did not nominate you for confirmation as permanent DNI, and it would be inappropriate for you to pursue any additional leadership, organizational, or staffing changes to ODNI during your temporary tenure,” the letter reads. “Any effort, moreover, to remove or otherwise institute personnel actions against apolitical career officers based on their perceived loyalty to the President would contravene civil services protections.”
Schiff’s letter was a bridge too far for at least two senior intelligence officials.
Speaking to the Daily Caller, they ripped Schiff for the bush league move of leaking the letter to the media before it was sent to Acting Director Grenell and said that Grenell has not received any limitations on his ability to make personnel changes.
The Daily Caller exclusively reports:
“The [ODNI] staffers are so sick and tired of [Schiff] politicizing the intelligence community for his own gain,” the official told Daily Caller. “Notice how he sent the letter to the media before he sent it to ODNI.”
A second intelligence official declined to directly comment on Schiff’s letter but told Daily Caller that the Senate Intelligence Committee had not told Grenell and ODNI to refrain from making any personnel decisions, despite some media reports.
Adam Schiff is used to dealing with Directors of National Intelligence that think they work for the Deep State.
President Trump sought to change that.
Democrats and the fake news media decried the President for appointing a “loyalist” to the position.
But what really upset them was they could no longer count on the Acting Director of National Intelligence to work against the interests of the President of the United States.
And now Adam Schiff is learning that lesson the hard way as some of his former buddies in the intelligence community are losing their patience with Schiff’s political games.
